Hello everyone, I find the operation of the Drag 45 degree mode with the current version of PCB_Design a little special, if I modify an angle of a track it modifies the entire track erratically. In version 5 we do not have this type of operation. Should we make a particular setup or is it a bug?
Note that I highly recommend people use Walkaround as the default mode if they don’t want shoving behavior, not Highlight collisions, and report issues with the router. Highlight Collisions mode is much more limited and is not really an efficient way to use KiCad for most people, especially working with dense designs. We would much rather have issues reported than people just switching to Highlight Collisions mode because of some issue.
You can update the software to its latest version. Even if the problem persists, check the interactive router settings.
Make sure that the “optimization track being dragged” option is enabled. You can select modes “shove” and “walk around” accordingly and check out which works fine for you.
Hi @Amit_bahl, thanks, I use the latest Nightly version. No change to date, the problem is always the same. On the contrary, I do not want the system to modify in my place the entire track when I try to optimize it! It’s against productive. I’m not sure you understood the problem.
My real settings:
Hello and thank you Naib, it’s not a reproach but just a question, if we go to make the software improvements why broken what works?
Maybe, sometimes, improvements degrade rather than actually serve?
Moreover it generates more work than necessary.
But I understood the purpose of the Nightly Versions.
